Log-concavity, nearest-neighbour classification, variable selection and the Statistics Clinic

Samworth, R (Stats Lab)
Monday 26 September 2011, 12:10-12:20

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I will give a brief overview of some of my current research interests. These include log-concave density estimation and its applications, optimal weighted nearest neighbour classification, and the use of subsampling to improve high-dimensional variable selection algorithms. Finally, I will advertise the Statistics Clinic, which meets fortnightly during term, and where anyone in the university can obtain free statistical advice.
